What Jo did in Corsica...!

It's just a week to go till The Chelsea Flower Show - and there's one particular garden we're looking forward to visiting.
     It's the L'Occitane Immortelle Garden, where designer Peter Doyle has recreated the Corsican maquis, where a very special flower grows: 'Immortelle', a.k.a. the 'flower that never dies', which also happens to be the key ingredient in their Divine Cream - not just the top-scoring miracle product in our book The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible, but the highest we've ever had in that category to date.
     So it made sense for Jo to follow the journey of Immortelle from field-to-jar:  from Corsica to Provence, L'Occitane's home, where it's transformed into powerfully anti-ageing skin treats, and where she also met the company's inspiring founder, Olivier Baussan.  You can watch Jo's little 'movie', here (and we'll let you know when Part 2 is 'live'.)
     Meanwhile for a bit of fun, do also check out the 'Explore the Garden' page:  click here to visit - then click on different features for a preview of what the garden will look like.
     Though what a picture can never convey is the amazing, aromatic scent of what's now become one of Jo's favourite plants...
